rise in COVID-19 numbers and our commitment to do
our part to slow the spread, the Tucson Girls Chorus
has pivoted the previously scheduled Drive-In concert
to the Sounds of Winter VIRTUAL edition. Following the
traditions of our TGC's Sounds of
Winter Concert our songbirds have put
together a dazzling show with their strong voices and
audience-favorite tunes. The best part is this
winter you get to enjoy it from your own
home anywhere in the world! To join
the concert simply make
a tax-deductible donation to the TGC. The
afternoon of Sunday, December 20th you will be
sent a link to watch each TGC choir light up your home
stage. We suggest the amount of your ticket
purchase ($15 - $20) per attendee or more. Due to
copyright laws the concert link will be active for a
limited amount of time.
Please note that if you
previously purchased a ticket to the Sounds of Winter
Drive-In edition concert, your credit card was NOT
charged. You will need to make a donation directly to
the TGC to view the Sounds of Winter Virtual edition
concert. THANK YOU for your contribution and trust in
the power of community music-making and affirmation
that our songbirds' voices will always matter.
